Colin Powell Urges Path to Legal Status for Undocumented Workers

In an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Former Secretary of State Colin Powell expressed his opinion regarding many immigration-related issues.  Powell focused his interview, however, on the benefits provided by undocumented immigrants, economic and otherwise.

Powell recognized immigrants as the force moving the United States forward, and specifically credited them as performing essential work in the United States.  The former secretary of state stated, immigrants “are all over my house, doing things whenever I call for repairs, and I’m sure you’ve seen them at your house.  We’ve got to find a way to bring these people out of the darkness and give them some kind of status.”

Powell’s statements were directly on point and highlighted the need for immigration reform.
